Paper Hangover asks the question What are your five favorite contemporary novels?
I love contemporary YA. I read plenty of fantasy and paranormal romance but when I pick up a contemporary YA it is like getting together with an old friend.
1. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen- I always feel like I have so much in common with characters in a Sarah Dessen novel. This one reminded me of summers working at an ice cream store on the boardwalk.
2. The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler
3. The Duff
4. Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn- I realize these books have been out for a while now but I still love them and pretty much anything by Rachel Cohn.
5. Looking for Alaska by John Green
